origanum rotundifolium

This is one of my all-time favorite flowers. I bought the tiny plant because it was in the dry-tolerance section of the plant store and it bloomed into this incredible and complicated looking flower. One day I hope  to have a huge hanging basket full!

Gorgeous blooms... I would totally fall in love with them if they were anywhere near me. Funny that you have a "dry section" in the store. Our country is so wet, no dry section here.
